A few decades ago, one day, as the workers at the quarries were braking the marbles of the surface, instead of hitting a marble vein, they hit an underwater creek! Soon after, the water filled the quarry, and a new natural lake was born! In proximity to the Taxiarches village, at the foots of the Falakro Mt., we have sign-posted two hiking trails that invite you to walk on the footsteps of the marble quarries workers. Both trails start in front of the beautiful Jennifer Home Hotel. You will see the hilly and colorful landscapes of Drama, you will walk under gigantic plane trees and by small creeks, you will enjoy unlimited views over the peaks of Falakro Mt. and the vast plane until the Paggaio Mt. Below, we invite you to see some pictures, as well as the maps of the trails, available to download for GPS and Smart phones.
